Hawaii Real Estate Tax Exemption

The threshold for property tax in Hawaii is $5.49 million in 2018. That number should increase to match the federal exemption in 2019, but it’s not entirely clear if that will happen or what it will look like. However, for now, any property of a person who died in 2018 is subject to the 2018 rules. If the value of your property exceeds the $5.49 million exemption, you will be liable to pay property tax. You only have to pay tax on the value that exceeds the exemption.
